was good. michelle obama's speech was good. markell rubio's speech -- marco rubio's speech last week was good. going back and forth, trying to decide which way i will leave. i think it will come down to -- you can have a talking point and you can have these things you're going to do and say you are going to do all you want. it will come down to leadership. the bottom line for me as that barack obama had the control congress his first two years, he got nothing but his own way to do what he wanted to do. i am sorry. he rammed everything three. he did it in a matter of fact way and lost respect of his fellow constituents. the last two years with the republicans are getting a bad rep, beating not want to work with someone like that. >> levy dumping in -- let me jump in on that. let's go back to the floor. >> you probably could get a greater distance -- and that it greater distance between guam of florida. we begin with the mayor of riviera speech, florida. your thoughts? >> with the speech president clinton and left side of michelle, we are going to vote for president obama. how can you

[applause] >> "washington journal" contines. ues. host: a live picture of the time warner cable the arena. our program will begin at 3:00 eastern time from the floor of the convention hall. president obama and vice president biden will accept their parties' nominations tonight. gavel-to-gavel coverage on c- span. meanwhile, we're joined by david wagner, a charlotte anchor, wcnc tv. what do you think about having the convention in your home town? guest: this is great. i think this is something that some never expected. this is the biggest convention that charlotte has ever posted. some people really did not know what to expect. i still think a lot of folks from the charlotte area it may have not had the chance to get down here and experience this. some were a little bit scared away that perhaps traffic would be so bad and businesses would be shut down, and to be honest, after having, fro
to marry michelle obama. [ applause and cheers ] >> after the speech, a surprise appearance by president obama, "surprise" being relative. then the roll call of states. we'll have much more on last night's big speech coming up in a live report in a few minutes. >>> the secret service is investigating the reported theft of mitt romney's federal tax records. a letter sent to a tennessee political office and newspaper claims to have these papers and demanded a $1 million ransom to not release them. but romney's accounting firm says there is no evidence of his returns being stolen. >>> new this morning, the german man facing first-degree murder charges for the death of his socialite wife will be back in court for a mental status hearing. the doctors say he is now competent to stand trial. prosecutors say he beat and then strangled 91-year-old viola drath in her georgetown home. his case is on hold because of his behavior since his arrest. >>> your chance to weigh in on how much you pay to drive on the dulles toll road. today the metropolitan washington airports authority will hold the first
for barack obama. some of the rather key ones is because he chose michelle as his wife. >> that was very sensible i think, yes. no, i think that she is a perfect partner for him. she is very strong. she's sort of balances, healthy, and practical firmness with gentleness and nurturing and she's a terrific mother and that is enormously important. >> you know barack better than most people. what will he be feeling? a lot of pressure? does he get nervous? >> i don't think he's nervous. i think he's very prepared. i think the speech is going to be great. and i think, you know, he's probably stretching his long limbs and excited to address the crowd. >> better than bill clinton's? that's the key question. >> i think he'll be different. everyone serves their purpose. michelle was about storytelling. about helping us to kind of frame the campaign issues and deeply, you know, loving intimate ways and bill clinton was about gaining perspective. on the last four years. and i think my brother is going to be about looking ahead. >> i think the crowd rather liked what you've just been saying. it's all
fighters. weather moved tonight indoors. but after a first night owned by michelle obama, after a second night owned by president clinton, expectations for the finale are sky high. msnbc's primetime coverage of the democratic national convention's final night begins right now. >>> thank you for joining us. i'm rachel maddow here at msnbc headquarters in new york. i'm joined by ed shultz, melissa harris-perry, chris hayes, and the senior strategist steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell and al sharpton will be joining us in a moment. leading us from the site of the convention is our colleague and friend chris matthews. you said on opening night this week that democrats were having more fun than republicans. but that didn't necessarily mean that they were winning. the democrats have been ecstatic at previous conventions where they had gone on to lose. so how do you rate the democrats' happiness and their prospects? >> wow. you're hitting me with the toughest questions. there's two months left with a lot of economic news to come. we've got the unemployment rate coming out tomorrow morning. two m
to get across today? >> well, first and foremost, the conversation that the first lady michelle obama had with america about her values and the president's values and really about family values was one of the most incredible conversations i've heard in a long, long period of time. president bill clinton just really, beyond anything we've heard in recent times from the president. then president obama later on tonight. my main goal is to talk about the president's record, president obama, the many things he's still, in my opinion, not received proper credit for and that the public still needs to know while talking about, again, the real record or lack thereof of mitt romney and the things that he's talked about but has no plans to do anything about. so that's my goal for this evening. it's a great honor to be a part of this. then sit back and relax and listen to our president, who we're going to work hard to get re-elected. >> you mentioned the credit you believe the president receives. in some of the states that are recovering that have a lower unemployment rate than the national average,
. and by the way, after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. [cheers and applause] you know -- i -- i want -- i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states. [cheers and applause] and i proudly nominate him to be the standard-bearer of the democratic party. [cheers and applause] now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk -- all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative -- this alternative universe -- [laughter] says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss -- used to say that ever politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. [laughter] but, as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats -- we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities
have a funny question for you after listening to nancy pelosi speak now and thinking back on michelle obama last night talking about being the mom and she nancy pelosi introduced herself as a mother and a grandmother. and we saw her daughter and granddaughter in the crowd. is it possibly a strong, efficient, accomplished political woman anymore without saying you are a mom first? >> i am not a mom. i guess it is -- absolutely. but i have to laugh about all the times where nancy pelosi has described her leadership in terms of motherhood and in terms of being a woman. and i think it does make her a powerful leader. and i think my life experiences that i bring to the job everyday also make me a strong leader. >> and can i follow-up. michelle obama could have told an alternative story that she went to princeton, she went to harvard law and became a successful lawyer. she went to the chicago hospital system making $300,000 a year. top 1%. it was a successful career story. and she probably had doubts about leaving that behind. why is that not possible to tell that story? >> well, it is poss
michelle obama. [applause] i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i probably nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party -- proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. in tampa a few days ago we heard a lot of talk about how the president and the democrats do not believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everyone to bea dependet now on the government, how bad we are on the economy. this alternative universe says that everyone of us in this room who amounts to anything, we are all completely self made. one of the greatest german the democratic party ever had, bob strauss and -- which is rated one of the greatest democrat, bob strauss says every american wants you to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself, but he admitted it ain't so. we democrats think the country works better with real opportunities. with business and government working together to promote growth and proudly share prosperity. we believe we are all in this together is a far better philosophy than we are
6. thank you. [applause] >> please welcome the >> that is barack " obama and michelle obama's story. my father was a construction worker. he built our highways. my mother arrived in this country as a newlywed with no money, and no family. together, they realized the dream of sending their four children to college. the american dream. in any language, that is what this election is about. we need president obama for four more years to keep that dream alive. when president obama was elected, the american dream was on life-support. the middle class was being hauled out. we cannot afford to go back to the failed policies of the past. maybe governor romney has forgotten how he got into the mess that president obama faced. we have not. two wars, tax breaks for the wealthiest, the wall street bailout, katrina. nearly 9 million americans lost their jobs because of the great recession. our teachers, firefighters, and police officers were laid off, and our small businesses could not get the bail out banks to offer them any credit. how many construction workers like my father do you think the d
